Gracious living for property owners

In keeping with its vision to offer ‘gracious living’ to its consumers, Kohler Kitchen and Bath has launched in South Africa.

Since 1873, Kohler has been at the forefront of transforming bathrooms globally with its comprehensive range of bold and innovative luxury products. Company founder, John Michael Kohler, was an Austrian immigrant to the USA and became a visionary businessman. In 1873 he purchased a foundry in rural Wisconsin that produced a variety of cast-iron and steel products. And that was just the beginning. After much anticipation, this iconic brand is now firmly taking root in South Africa with the opening of three dedicated showrooms in Johannesburg, Durban

and Cape Town. During September 2015, three exclusive launch events heralded the arrival of this iconic brand. Kohler Africa’s launch events were well attended by key representatives of the Kohler Company, including Salil Sadanandan, MD of Kohler India and sub-Saharan Africa. Critical to the long-term partnerships Kohler Africa will be creating with customers in South Africa, the event afforded customers the opportunity to experience the boldness of Kohler products while interacting with the experienced Kohler team who were keen to elaborate on the craftsmanship, design and technology associated with each product. ‘We are excited about launching in this country. Kohler has a legacy of over 142 years in innovation and bold design. Our product portfolio spanning the entire spectrum of bath fittings is at the leading edge of design and technology, which will appeal to discerning customers of South Africa. We look forward to bringing bold inspiration and gracious living into South African homes,’ explains Sadanandan. ‘Kohler is a global leader in kitchen and bath products. As a brand, Kohler stands for design and innovation, resulting in distinctive product experiences. With a range of Artist Editions® products, which are hand crafted and inspired by rich cultures across the globe, to a fully-automated showering experience with DTV+ and differentiated colours like black in the bathroom, and the Veil wall hung toilets, Kohler brings new experiences to consumers every day,’ Sadanandan adds. ‘The mission of our company is to enhance the level of “gracious living” for everybody. With more than 50 manufacturing locations on six continents, more than 30 000 Kohler associates are able to present the concept of gracious living in every corner of the world.’ Kohler takes pride in being able to adapt its style to the countries in which it operates, and Sadanandan believes that South Africa will be no different. ‘Pivotal to the Kohler brand is the level of quality that remains consistent across the product range, guaranteeing consumers a high-quality product distinctive to Kohler standards irrespective of the price. While the plumbing  industry is evolving at a rapid pace, Kohler remains one step ahead of the game with a widespread footprint across several overseas countries, as well as in Africa and South Africa.  Kohler’s core pillars stand firmly entrenched in modern art, design, technological innovation and craftsmanship aimed at creating a unique bathroom experience.
